Health Benefits Of Noni & Cognitive Function Test 11A

I have known the Noni plant from primary school-days, but not as a health food but rather as a nuisance fruit; the children all referred to the fruit as dog dumplings.

There were trees on the perimeter of the school grounds and the road o the entrance of the school, we were careful to avoid stepping on the soft smelly fruit; but I do not recall anyone who made reference to the fruit or tree in relation to a health food.

My awareness began as late as five years ago when I began researching plant based diets; i even planted a tree in my back yard which is now full of fruit; but I am yet to start formulating a recipe for its use. As someone on limited blood pressure medication, I am duly cautious.

Noni gained popularity as a miracle cure for all sort of ills, but one should not get carried but pay attention to its health benefits, with some caution.

Noni Juice was used for medical conditions for more than 2000 years in China, India and Polynesia. Many health experts across the globe are lauding its benefits in modern health care. The juice and fruit are mostly used; but the bark, leaves and root have also been used in Polynesia.

  1. Wow, I had no idea that even a Noni fruit plant existed! Let alone known as ‘dog dumpling’ fruit.
    What country did you grow up in? I don’t think we have those in the UK.
    That’s quite a lot of health benefits also, would you suggest anyone healthy uses Noni juice, or when you have a specific ailment?
    Would be fascinated to know!


  2. Thanks for visiting, I doubt you will find Noni plant in the UK, but you never know, with the advances in agricultural science.You will definitely find it in the Caribbean and I did mention other countries in the article. I definitely recommend adding it to your plant-based diet, taking the warnings in consideration. The image in the article is taken from my backyard. Please engage in some further reading.


  3. Noni fruit sound like the new super-food. Only it is not new, but maybe will be newly discovered by many through your blog. 

    Very fascinating the list of all the amazing healing properties this fruit has. Especially that is high in potassium. I eat bananas for my daily potassium intake, but now I might have an alternative in Noni fruit. 

    Is it easy to grow it? Does it grow relatively fast? 

    Thank you for sharing this valuable information with the world!


  4. Yes the Noni craze evaporated, but it is still a healthy food, it is easy to grow, I have a tree full of fruit at the moment in my backyard.Great for skin care also.Thanks for visiting.
